The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicked off in Brazil today (June 12) and all eyes will soon be on Team USA as they fight their way to glory — we hope — despite finding themselves in the same group as football heavyweights/Cup favorites Germany and Portugal. To help get you in the patriotic spirit, digital music service Rdio has put together a surprisingly poptastic playlist.
Nothing evokes national pride quite like Miley Cyrus‘ seminal “Party In The USA” or Carrie Underwood‘s “All-American Girl”. If those anthems aren’t to your liking, how about Jay Z and Kanye West‘s “Made In America” or Demi Lovato‘s “Made In The USA”? Oh and there’s even Madonna‘s controversial “American Life”, which could momentarily put a dampener on your mood with its biting commentary. Listen to all the songs after the jump.
